AGC Book Tours: "Tweet the Police" by Ellis Drake Book Review

Title: Tweet The Police
Author: Ellis Drake
Genre: Mystery 
Number of Pages: 26  

Rick thought being a sheriff's deputy in the small New Mexico town of Ultima would be a quiet job--but that was before he met Mrs. Pendergast, the local busybody who fancies herself an amateur sleuth.

When Mrs. P sees a tweet asking for help on her new smartphone, she's determined to find out if the "tweep" is okay; and it's all Rick and her granddaughter, Sylvie, can do to keep up with her! 

Tweet the PoliceTweet the Police by Ellis Drake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is truly a clever short story with some interesting tweaks along the way, but I just felt that the short story was not developed well enough.  Writing a short story mystery is always a difficult thing to do.  The concept behind the story is absolutely brilliant, and this is a short, entertaining read.  I just wish there had been a little more development to it.  There is a sickening scene (but it is necessary), and there is some profanity.  But if you just need a little story to rev up your mystery engine, this may be the book for you.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
